Sports IELTS Speaking Part 1 Questions With Answer

1. Do you like sport?

Yes, I do. It's the only way I can relieve stress and get significantly healthier. Also, it's my favourite way to meet new people and have fun with other people. So, yes, for sure.

2. Do you play any sports?

Certainly not as much as I need to. These days, my work schedule leaves very little time for leisure activities. On Sundays, I usually spend a couple of hours playing cricket, while on other days, I'll play football.

3. Have you played Cricket for a long period of time?

Since I was around 6 years old. CRICKET-07, a computer game on cricket that I played, made me obsessed with the sport. After that, I played cricket every day until I began working, where at a point other things took priority, although I regret not continuing because it was something I loved.

4. Do you watch sports on TV? 

Yes I do watch sports on TV. My favourite sport to watch on television is cricket. I am a fan of the Indian cricket team. I enjoy watching it on television, especially the World Cup and India vs. Pakistan match. 

5. What sports do people in your nation enjoy playing?

I adore cricket, which is arguably the most popular sport in my nation. The entire nation takes pleasure in this sport as if it were in our blood. It can be seen that on sundays, there will be many young people playing cricket on the playgrounds.

6. How do people in your country stay fit?

People in my country are blessed with lovely surroundings and a pleasant temperature, therefore the majority of people jog. Many young people participate in field sports, but an increasing number are enrolling in gyms. In recent years, gyms have flourished as people have become increasingly concerned about their appearance. I believe it has much less to do with fitness and much more to do with appearance.

7. Is it important for children to play sports?

Certainly. In addition to keeping kids healthy, sport teaches them discipline and keeps them out of trouble. In my class, for instance, those who were committed to sports also earned the highest grades and went on to elite universities where they continued to work hard.

8. What types of exercise do you perform?

Personally, I engage in conditioning workouts such as squats or swimming to enhance my fitness levels. And endurance, and cardio exercises to enhance my flexibility, build muscle strength, and improve my posture.

9. What kind of exercises are popular in your country?

Well, I believe that cardiovascular, weight and mobility activities are the most popular forms of athletic training in my country. I believe this is because they help people burn fat, develop muscle, improve posture, and achieve maximum heart and lung health.

10. Do you like extreme sports?

Extreme sports assist me in overcoming my concerns, expanding my own boundaries, strengthening my self-affirmation, and preparing me for life's physical threats.

11. Who is your favourite sports star?

Well, there's no question about it: it's Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He has a record for being the best captain in the history of cricket. I adore his cricketing style because of his natural leadership abilities, his cool temperament, and the innovative ways he plays the game. I also like his impeccable manners and exceptional patience in distributing his many commitments in day-to-day life. I find both of these qualities commendable.

12. Do you believe that there is an excessive amount of sport shown on television in your country?

In recent years, many athletic events have been organized, and some are ongoing. Premier Leagues are also organized today. IPL is held annually, Pro Kabaddi quarterly, and International Cricket frequently. There are many global sports networks on TV. In conclusion, there are too many sports on TV.

13. Have you ever shown your support for a particular sports team?

For the longest time, Virat Kohli was the sole reason I cheered for the Indian cricket team. I'm sure it was a joy to watch him play. One of my new favourite sports teams is Manchester United, a football team.

14. Who do you like to watch sports games with? 

I really can't say for sure. I can't think of anyone in particular. Nonetheless, if I must tell someone, it will probably be my dad because we both enjoy sports and share an affection for Virat Kohli.

15. What kinds of games do you expect to watch in the future? 

In the future, I predict, audiences will enjoy watching every form of sporting event equally, whether it's soccer, cricket, or volleyball.
